You can make an update to your registry that will allow this these to be shown, details below.

 

We know there is an issue with some versions if internet explorer and some other browsers and a permanent fix will be part of our next PC client re-build but in the meantime this is a fix for those users that are competent to make the change and understand the impact it can have on other applications if this procedure is not followed correctly. 

WARNING

Open regedit.exe - navigate to the below key
